Had lunch with my son and spouse. This is a very casual place. My son recommended and we met for lunch two times.

The tacos had to be one of the best tacos I have eaten. The choices were great, but the service time wasn't perfect and one of my tacos was a little cold. But it was a nice place, even though it is pretty much hidden. Definitely would reccomend
